You also tried your best to pass civil services exam but you could not clear it. You have exhausted all your attempts. At present you are unemployed. Your friend who is undergoing training, who initially used to answer your calls, has stopped receiving your calls. She is always active on social networking sites though. Very recently she visited her parents, but did not visit you (she lives on the same street as yours). Your parents tell you that she has become arrogant ever since she passed civil services exam. Some of your friends tell you that she might be busy with training and has no time to talk. Some even suggest that she may not be comfortable to talk to you anymore as she has found new friends there who are successful. Your friends advice you to forget her, make new friends and move on with your life.
